We had the barn painted last week and the fences were just finished this past weekend. The horses will be moving into their new home soon.

Version 2.0 Is Coming!

Version 2 Homepage
This is our new homepage.

Sooo.... the wait is nearly over!!!! V2 will open for BETA testing in mid to late August of next month. BETA accounts will be for testing only, which means they will be deleted and you will have to either import your account or create a new account when V2 is officially open. As things stand right now, the plan is for V2 to officially open by January of 2015 but I'm willing to adjust that date if the testing goes well or hold off until all bugs and issues in V2 have been address.

What Does That Mean For V1?
I will not replace V1 with V2 until all known V2 bugs have been fixed -- that is my promise to you. I'm asking for everyone to import or create an account on V2 when it opens and report any issues and problems you find to our new helpdesk system. No bug is too small so please report it even if you don't think it's a bug!!!

What About My Upgrades?
You won't loose your existing upgrades when we switch over to V2 as long as you import your old accounts into the new game. Upgrades will be changing but you will be getting comparable features and functionality to what you have now.

When Can I Start Playing V2 BETA?
I will post another article when I'm ready for people to start playing. Please, please, please create an account when I post V2 is open. The more people that are playing means the more testers I have to make sure V2 is working without issues and as it was intended to work.

Wow I've been busy this summer trying to get everything ready and moved onto the farm so I am way behind on a lot of things I had planned to do this month! What have you been up to this summer? I hope you're keeping cool in the hot weather we've been having. I'm hoping to get information posted about the upcoming V2 beta testing that's scheduled for August within the next week or so. In the meantime here are some more pictures of the farm so you can see what I've been up to lately. You can visit the farm's website and like it on Facebook if you're interested in what's been going on.

Freshly cut fields
Our grass was finally long enough that we could cut it. Here are the freshly cut fields during the end of a storm.

Road down to the barn
The road down to the barn was finished.

Cleaning up the fields
Spent a few afternoons cleaning up the pastures of big rocks and roots which will also help the grass grow in.

Pasture debris
Some of the stuff we cleared out of the pasture to make better footing for the horses, we had 4 wheelbarrows full!

Wild raspberries
I found wild raspberries growing all around our property line. I wonder if they're safe to eat...?

Tack room
Installed the saddle racks and bridle hooks in the tack room.

Moving in
Starting to move in all of my horse tack, supplies and blankets.

Hay delivered
Got my first delivery of hay.

Stall shavings
Put lots of fresh shavings in the stalls for the horses.

Horse fencing in progress
Horse fencing in progress! The barn is getting painted red and white sometime this week :)

Barn Party Changes

I totally spaced out on the parties yesterday. Sorry guys. To make up for it we're having three parties today instead of just the one. The first two parties will be run by Bunny from the English register and I'll be running the last one. Remember that EST is the same as GT. If you need help figuring out what time the party starts for you try using this time zone converter.

Party Times

  • 11am EST - run by Bunny
  • 2pm EST - run by Bunny
  • 6pm EST - run by Jade
